Quark Rosinenbrötchen/Eggless German Curd Cheese Raisins Rolls

Quark is a well known German Curd cheese which is often used in most of the dishes in Germany. Though this curd cheese is not easily available here is Paris, i couldnt resist to grab it from a nearby cheese store, where you can find any sort of the regional or international cheese varieties easily. When i picked this Quark cheese, i checked immediately for an easy dish to dish with this cheese for this month's Mega marathon which i have been running since two weeks with A-Z baking around the world as theme. Obviously for the Alphabet 'Q' i couldnt resist to bake this Quark bread roll with loads of raisins. Quark is a fresh cheese which is quite similar to Greek yogurt which is less in tanginess and less in calorie with rich in protein. Some quark cheese rolls calls for yeast but this raisin loaded quark bread rolls calls for baking powder.
